Hop Along With the All-Star Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway Cast

March 12th, 2020Hop Along With the All-Star Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway Cast

Peter Rabbit is already an iconic name all on its own, thanks to the early 20th-century pastel drawing-filled pages of Beatrix Potter’s children’s books. So, for the live-action sequel to 2018’s PETER RABBIT, of course Sony Pictures Animation has hand-picked some incredible talent.

PETER RABBIT 2: THE RUNAWAY has the famed floppy-eared bunny and his friends venturing outside the garden for the first time. It’s sure to be a fun-filled and action-packed adventure set across the pond. Peter Rabbit along with Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail, just to name a few, are discovering new corners of the world, in this joyous "tail" for the whole family.

As you plan your trip to see PETER RABBIT 2: THE RUNAWAY at AMC theatres in August, check out the all-star cast you can join on the ride.

James Corden

Best known for his Carpool Karaoke and Crosswalk the Musical segments on "The Late Late Show with James Corden," he’ll also reprise his voice role as the mischievous Peter Rabbit. His character leads all the fun in PETER RABBIT 2: THE RUNAWAY when he convinces his adorable gang to get away from their home at the garden over the fear of McGregor and Bea having children. Corden has brought his charisma before to INTO THE WOODS, BEGIN AGAIN, TROLLS and CATS.

Rose Byrne

Between her laugh-out-loud comedy moments in BRIDESMAIDS, NEIGHBORS and SPY to her more serious performances in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and INSIDIOUS, Rose Byrne is a particularly memorable name in Hollywood. In the PETER RABBIT sequel, she reprises the role of Bea, a writer and artist who loves to record the rabbits’ lives in books. She’s modeled after the series’ actual author, Beatrix Potter. In this new movie, she’ll be faced with budding interest from a publisher and starting a more settled life with McGregor.

Domhnall Gleeson

Although he most certainly started off as the villain in the first PETER RABBIT — and is most recognizable as General Hux in STAR WARS — Domhnall Gleeson has a soft side, too, that he’ll show in PETER RABBIT 2: THE RUNAWAY. His character of Mr. Thomas McGregor is still protective of his immaculate garden, which began the hijinks between him and the bunnies in the first movie, but he’s starting to accept the furry friends as he gets ready to marry Bea and think of raising kids with Peter Rabbit around.

David Oyelowo

Since Domhnall Gleeson is no longer the villain of the PETER RABBIT story, Sony Pictures Animation has enlisted David Oyelowo to play the antagonist in the sequel. The two-time Golden Globe-nominated actor is playing Nigel Basil-Jones, the publisher interested in Bea’s work. Just what he has up his sleeve is up to you to find out when you see the movie in theatres. Oyelowo's notable roles include Martin Luther King Jr. in 2014’s SELMA, as well as performances in QUEEN OF KATWE, A WRINKLE IN TIME and DON’T LET GO.

Margot Robbie

Reprising her role as Flopsy Rabbit for PETER RABBIT 2: THE RUNAWAY is none other than Aussie actress Margot Robbie. She’s had a massive year already, continuing Harley Quinn’s story in BIRDS OF PREY, co-starring in her second Oscar®-nominated role in BOMBSHELL, and portraying Sharon Tate in Best Picture nominee ONCE UPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD. This voice role has Robbie playing the middle rabbit to triplet bunny sisters. Flopsy has a lisp and tons of nervous energy — you’d likely never guess it was Robbie behind those ears!

Elizabeth Debicki

Another notable actor you’ll hear in Peter Rabbit’s latest adventure is rising star Elizabeth Debicki. The actress has returned to play Mopsy, Flopsy and Cotton-Tail’s (Aimee Horne) smart and feisty eldest sister. Her most high-profile role was in the opening scene of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 as Ayesha, but Debicki was also featured in Guy Ritchie’s THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E., Steve McQueen’s WIDOWS and THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX with David Oyelowo.
